that barack obama is self-confident and you see a seemingly different president to d today than we saw a year or two ago when we went through the debt nonsense in the middle of 2011. i think that he feels much more able to pull the strings and know what the power is and isn't. he's been scandal-free, and in part, that comes from the top. no disrespect to any of the presidents who got into problems bu but he sets a standard that people know the line they have to tow and they know it and that is why the administration has done well, and he will have the republicans at him and that is going to keep him from the overreach from the republicans. >> and history is what the president has to worry about, because this is almost like deja vu all over again and it takes the scandal out of f the scandal out of it, but the fog of war and what may happen, and what the president has to be cognizant of and not just the presidents that you mentioned, but lyndon baines johnson and other presidents that in the second term things happen o outside of their reach, and he needs to be cognizant of history. >> thank

remember that inspiring call from president obama exactly four years, to end partisan politics. if you were keeping score, and we are, that promise would actually fall into the incomplete category. promises considered, mostly clept, more jobs and a middle class tax break, ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan and, of course, making health care accessible for all. tomorrow morning the president will be making even more promises. the question though, can he keep them? back with me now bill schneider, resident fellow for the think tank and lynn sweet of the chicago sun times." bill, your organization spends a fair amount of time on important issues of the day. what promises can we expect to hear from president obama tomorrow? >> immigration reform. i mean, that's something he neglected in his first term and didn't give it any real priority, and it's very important. really helped him get elected, re-elected rather. guns will come up, i think, because the mood is right for that. i'm not sure how far he'll be able to go with that because of the resistance in the house, but he'll fight the good

, but i would say that two things, first, it's very important that president obama and the secretary of defense have a trust relationship. they're going to go through some difficult times in the next few years. if senator hagel isotology take on a tfk of this magnitude and the president trusts him, i think those are two really important things because it not going to be an easy four years. >> and, general, finally mali, we have a situation now where the troops that we helped are now turning -- they've become islamic rebels. they're fighting against the regime. we are being asked to play some support role perhaps with drones and other roles for the french troops. >> i think we're going to find that the whole world, but particularly africa and the middle east are changing and they're going to keep changing. i think what america has to first do is do our homework. don't be surprised by these very, very complex situations as they evolve. don't be surprised that syria is extraordinarily complex. mali is complex and going to get worse. then we've got to look at each one both individually t

because we've seen already over the past four years what the obama administration's been doing with these air strikes. >> aerial drone strikes aside, does the cia need to pull out at the same time as the military? because doesn't the military help back up many of their operations? >> without a doubt. but the cia already maintains such a strong presence across the region it's unlikely that it's going to reduce that. there's some aspect of the cia's presence that's involved with helping the military, perhaps gathering intelligence precisely for operations that involve troops, but also that's going to shift perhaps to providing intelligence for these types of drones. a lot of that relies on human intelligence on the ground and assets on the ground. it's unlikely that is going to be reduced if the u.s. still feels it needs to have that presence as they've indicated they will. >> does the cia operate in its own kind of bubble? are they going to be able to as effectively bring this human intelligence with less people on the ground? >> well, from a technological point of view, phone i

-- between the way people feel about wall street. >> chuck, you remember the campaign, the obama campaign was very hesitant to make the argument, are you better off than you were four years ago. they finally embraced it, and the ads down the stretch. but there was always this hesitancy, because just as these statistics bear out, there is some good information, some good news. but there is also some bad news too. >> and, look, the unemployment rate is one of the good news stories. the economy is growing. not the way it needs to. but both of those in better shape. >> but the most -- the striking stat stick there, the number of troops in iraq. that was the issue that launched barack obama's candidacy, allowed him to beat hillary clinton in 2008, allowed him to beat john mccain in that general election. and you see those numbers, what they were in january, 2009. >> i forget how much people didn't like that war. and still don't like that war to this day. and that brings us to our nbc "wall street journal" poll we will have tonight and tomorrow morning. >> 6:30 tonight with the first numbers. >

years. a new article about king coal and he joins me now. reed, it's interesting. people will look at this and say, oh, this is just a reaction to president obama. and what i wanted to make sure people understood is this is something, it's more about as the environmental movement became more synonymous with the democratic party, and this is split. because coal workers are union guys. >> and this is part of a large shift that's happened a couple of times in. the unionization movement grew, labor became a huge force and democrats basically controlled west virginia and kentucky on and off. for the better part of the 20th century. then after bill clinton's administration, democrats came to rely more on environmentalists as a leg of their stool. the environmental movement grew and democrats became more of a coastal country, coastal party that is and the party has slipped over the last couple of decades. the republicans won the kentucky state senate in 2000. one of the few highlights was knocking off ben chandler in kentucky. >> republicans made gains in west virginia in their house dele

. a letter to president obama published an m.i.t. technology review a week ago was just as emphatic. it says, it is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late. end quote. european ngo, climate before them say climate change will zap the u.s. economy of over $400 billion annually by 2030. already they say it's stealing $1.2 trillion from the global economy each year and contributing to deaths of nearly 400,000 people. now, one hopeful sign here if you, chris, the cost of extreme disasters and catastrophes, natural or manmade, that went down last year. >> so one little piece of good news in the middle of all of that other concern. >> yes. >> it's a beautiful day here in new york. >> it is a beautiful day today. >> yeah. thank you so much, richard. >>> and that's going to wrap up this hour of "jansing and company." i'm chris jansing. thomas roberts is up next. >> good morning, everybody. topping our agenda, president obama meets the press. he's going to be holding his 37th solo news conference, the final news conference of his first term. just minutes
